The trial of an army bomb disposal expert charged with attempting to murder his pregnant wife is expected to start today.

Nicholas Fabian, 33, of High View, Vigo, is accused of causing a car explosion outside the family home injuring Victoria Fabian in March last year. He is due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court after his trial was postponed for a week.

The former army bomb disposal officer is also accused of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. He has pleaded not guilty to both charges, but guilty to a charge of possessing ammunition without a certificate after 95 rifle rounds were found in his garden shed.

Mrs Fabian suffered severe damage to her legs during the incident. Her unborn child was born unharmed.

The trial is expected to last three to four weeks.
